About Cheetah Experience Ashia
Cheetah Experience Ashia is a world-class cheetah sanctuary and working farm outside Paarl in South Africa’s Western Cape.
An African name meaning ‘life and hope’, Ashia lies nestled at the foot of the dramatic Drakenstein mountains, providing the perfect setting for the sanctuary’s conservation and environmental education programmes. Founded to help to prevent the further decline of the cheetah population, Cheetah Expereince Ashia's goal is to support other ethical and sustainable conservation initiatives, particularly programmes aimed at reintroducing cheetahs into the protected wild.
Luxurious accommodation offers guests the opportunity to experience farm life first-hand. Guests and day visitors alike can refresh and eat at the Café with its sweeping views over the Drakenstein mountains, browse through the extensive selection of high end gifts and memorabilia in the Boutique Shop, or explore the beauty and diversity of the farm on foot.
